How can we improve Configuration Manager?

Add "uninstall application" as an dependency option when creating applications

An example could be when users want to install 'Office 365 x64' on a machine which has 'Office 365 x86' installed. For the 1. to be installed the other should be uninstalled.

    I think this would be extremely beneficial. As an SCCM administrator I have required this function so many times. It is annoying that all the information is in SCCM (uninstall strings and detection methods etc) but they can't be accessed from this screen/window. We often have applications that require other applications to be removed first. An example of this is moving from one vendors tool to another vendors tool, such as a time recording tool. We would like to be able complete this process as a single implementation and not rely on superceedence, which at times has its quirks.

    This would be great. There are situations were old software was a made by 3 application, but new application is bundled in one application. It would be great if you could uninstall all three in old application in once.
